Positioning a popup relative to a table cell

    Some of the cells in my ASP.NET 2 table have a popup that appears when the
    user hovers the mouse over a text area that is indicated using an anchor
    tag. The popup is implemented as a DIV tag (position: relative) and is
    displayed and hidden using Javascript which calculates the popup position.

    The table has vertical scrollbars and when the table is scrolled to the very
    top then the popup is positioned correctly. However, if the table is
    scrolled then the vertical positioning is incorrect and the popup isn't
    visible at all.

    Could someone help me out with the Javascript algorithm for setting the
    popup position? I've looked at the DOM properties (offsetTop etc) but I
    can't get a working algorithm that takes into account the scrollbar

    this is the property you need to adjust


    add this to your logic where you set "Y" postion

    Best of luck
